My brother is probably one of the biggest gaming nerd kid in the neighborhood. Whenever there’s a new game coming out, he’d be the first to know. So when I decided to ask him about Overwatch, he gave me a long lecture about the game’s features and why I should play it. Below are just some of the things he said, so please enjoy!
Overwatch, a team-based multiplayer shooter, is a combination of Half-Life shooter games, Pixar’s three-dimensional graphics, and World of Warcraft’s character ingenuity. Gaming review website Kotaku released some of its gameplay videos and a game trailer to boot and both look awesome!
While it’s bound to become an online multiplayer shooting game, there is only a single player game available for the game’s beta version release next year. The heroes of Overwatch have their own awesome abilities and weapons and each stage are beautifully done. It’s not surprising of Blizzard to come up with these neat goodies. Accordingly, Overwatch is a reworked version of the PVP portion of Blizzard’s Titan, which was another MMO game but was overhauled in mid-2013.
I personally think that this might be a good move coming from Blizzard. One might think that they are trying to come up with more simple yet fun games instead of focusing years and years of development over a dying franchise. (*cough* Diablo *cough*) Look, I work at a SEO company in Birmingham and sometimes, working on my empty desk messes my flow of creative thoughts. This is why I sometimes pause whatever work I’m doing and would start playing simple games that doesn’t take up a lot of my time. Some gamers, however, believe that the multiplayer part of Overwatch shouldn’t be over-emphasized. I couldn’t agree more. Even I like a good single player game, nowadays.
Overwatch will be available on beta-version next year
